Thanks so much everyone for the suggestion! I will create a list in the Code4Lib wiki and share the link here once done. Fascinating to read all the suggestions. Tx again!

FOSS4Lib.org is relatively young in the broader scheme of things, and it isn't really geared towards developers /per se/. The target audience for FOSS4Lib is libraries making decisions about adopting open source software, whether run themselves or through a service provider. That said, there certainly is some synergy between the goals of FOSS4Lib and the ideals of the Code4Lib community.
